I'm trying to get my Airport disk to mount automatically. Looking at Apple's support pages, it says:

Automatically mounting hard disks

1. From the main window of AirPort Disk Utility enable "Show AirPort Disks in the menu bar".
2. Enter the username and password required to access the AirPort Disk(s).


But where the hell is Airport Disk Utility? Can't find it anywhere

Applications > Utilities > Airport Utility.

Select the AEBS you have the HDD connected to, then select the Disks preference and there you go, I think. I just have not seen the "AirDisk in MenuBar thingie".

Thanks - although I knew about that window. Problem I'm having is that, when I open iTunes (all my movies are on the airport disk), it can't locate the files. I first have to go to finder, click Airport Extreme in the sidebar, click the folder for the disk to mount and then reopen iTunes.

I want it to mount automatically.

I can't even find a way of downloading Airport Disk Utility to follow the instructions on Apple's site.
